  • BeanBay - Cotton Bag Recycling

    This is mentioned in lots of different places already but can get buried in other content.

    YES

    We do recycle the BeanBay Green Bean Cotton Bags.

    Return them empty, open and sticker removed to:

    CoffeeSnobs
    59 Morgan St
    North Geelong VIC 3215


    Don't forget to tell us who you are!

    We'll even put a $0.50/bag credit in BeanBay when we receive them but please only return bags that you would be happy for us to send to your mother.

    Over the years we have had them come back covered in pet hair, dirt, poo?!?! (those ones smelt REALLY bad) and certainly couldn't be reused. There is no need to wash them, just empty, open and sticker removed is good and obviously you won't receive a credit for unusable ones.

    Typically people wait till they have a good sized pile to justify the freight costs but we have no minimum or maximum on the returns.

    How about some with the old Coffee Snobs logo?
    I've got a stack of those in a cupboard somewhere too.
    My mother likes old, obsolete things.

      Yeah, we accept all CS bags even though it's less likely the non-zipper ones will be reused because the zip are way better to use than wire ties.

        Great idea. I was very excited to count out 20 bags I’ve been hoarding. $10 to my next purchase! Then I realised a satchel would be $11. Guess I’ll keep hoarding till I’ve got more bags and the equation works in my favour!

          We understand but unfortunately freight is expensive and there's no real way around it. We even tried to source some return satchels that could be used but they were more expensive than over the counter postage. The only real option would be to add a deposit to the cotton but that would get messy quick too.

          You might find as the pile gets bigger that someone like Sendle might work out okay (slow but cheap).

            Great idea but the coffeesnobs bags are in great demand amongst my family and friends as vegetable bags. Great for storing or transporting veggies or even taking to the supermarket instead of plastic

              Yeah, we do the same the zipper is excellent for stopping the round ones from rolling around in the car but it's not just vegies... at Christmas they were excellent ham bags to stop the leftovers from sweating in the fridge and mushrooms are way happier in cotton too.

                Ah beat me to it! I used them for keeping the ham alive last Christmas too. I was going to patent this idea......

                  Just an FYI for everyone - you can *just* fit 38 cotton bags inside a 3kg satchel
                  (possibly more, but that's all I had …. )

                      I’m in the same boat as many of you, these bags will be reused for shopping!

                        My wife uses them as bags for her knitting projects. That means none of mine will ever be recycled :-)

                          I think 'repurposed' counts just as highly as recycling...

                            I’ve “upholstered” my shed stool with a pair of the earlier non zipped CS bags.....
